Pair of ornate French gilt bronze wall mirrors
French, 19th Century
Height 76cm, width 41cm, depth 16cm
Crafted from gilt bronze in the charming and eclectic Renaissance manner, this pair of mirrors is a fine example of 19th Century French decorative art. Each mirror features an oversize, richly detailed gilt bronze frame, the bronze pierced to produce a latticework-like effect of scrolls and foliate forms. The gilt bronze is set with a host of motifs, including busts, masks, and grotesques. The bottom of each is set with a trio of gilt bronze candle branches.
